 I breastfed the oldest one. The youngest one, he gets sick a lot, but my oldest one doesn’t really get sick at all, because I breastfed him … [the younger one] had to stay in the hospital for about seven days because I caught an infection and then it passed through him. And at the time I couldn’t afford a breast pump. I couldn’t get to a pump fast enough so my milk dried up and I couldn’t breastfeed.

Those are my WIC checks.  I just wanted to show that WIC helps me out. There are a lot of programs that definitely do help you out in Philadelphia.
